Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant has made another step forward towards returning to the gridiron as he was able to do on-field conditioning work today. This keeps him on the right path to return as scheduled in week seven against the New York Giants.
The two-time Pro Bowler performed conditioning work on the field today for the first time since he broke his foot against the Giants in the season opener.
He wasn't working with the rest of the team, but this has further improved the chances of the wide receiver making his comeback to the gridiron in week seven against the Cowboys divisional rivals.

Bryant said after his workout, according to Jon Machota of the Dallas Morning News: “I’m getting back. I’m getting right. If it’s the Giants, it’s the Giants. That’s the plan.”
Cowboys fans will be desperate for him to return so they can try and get the offensive side of the ball moving once again this season. They were unable to do so convincingly last week when they faced the New England Patriots, as they lost 30-6.
But, with the Cowboys on a bye week, it provides Bryant with more time to recover before he misses out on anymore possible game time for the franchise he has called home since 2010.
The team has already made a change at quarterback, and possibly running back for their game in week seven.
Bringing back their top wide receiver will give them the best possibility of breaking their three-game losing streak as the Giants defense won't have a lot of film to go by to guess how the Cowboys will play with these three on the field.
